• Writer/Producer Frank Spotnitz talks his desire to make a third X-FILES Movie and the possibility of a MILLENNIUM movie:
Collider: Do you feel like you’ve closed the book now on The X-Files, or is there still another chapter to tell there? Do you still want to do a third movie?
FRANK SPOTNITZ: I absolutely do! I think everybody should write to 20th Century Fox. I’ve been saying for years now that I feel it’s a cultural crime that they have not finished the series. The second movie did not perform the way anybody wanted it to at the box office. I’m proud of that movie, but it makes sense to me that it didn’t. It was released at the height of summer, and it was a story-of-the-week. That’s not what the movie-going audience wanted. The movie-going audience wanted the aliens. That’s what they know The X-Files for. And that story is not done, and it should be finished. I don’t think it’s too late, but I think it’s gonna be, pretty soon. I’m still agitating with everyone I can grab to say, “Let’s make this movie while we still can!”
Collider: Lance Henriksen recently talked about his desire to make a Millennium movie. Is that something you’d like to go back and revisit?
SPOTNITZ: I would! It’s a harder case to make for Millennium because Millennium was one of those shows that was a critical darling, but never found the mass audience that it deserved. But, I get asked about that. There are amazing fans for both series. The Millennium guys are publishing a book this summer. They’re really clever about trying to make this happen. If they knocked on my door and we could do it, I would absolutely do it, but it’s a tough sell.
